Daisy Bouquet

Happy Monday! I'm up on the DeNami Design Blog today! This week our design team projects are all about Spring.

I’ve seen several dies and stamp sets on the market for creating floral wraps for bouquets of flowers. In fact, I have one of these combos on my wish list,  but for now I decided to take a shot at making my own using supplies I already have. Here’s how it turned out:

What do you think???

Here’s what I did. I cut a piece of patterned paper to 4” x 4” and then die-cut two adjacent sides with a stitched scallop border. I scored from the fourth scallop, down to the point on each side as shown.

To finish I used a bone folder to fold the flaps over, snipped the pointy end to make it less pointy, and tied on some twine. Ta-da! Now I have a floral wrap to fill with whatever bouquet of flowers I want.

For this project I chose to create a bouquet of daisies. The J77 Large Daisy Blossom is super simple to fussy cut. I stamped and cut out three, grouped them together in my floral wrap and added some enamel dots to the center of each. I also created a little sentiment tag for the bouquet using the NEW CL-D187 Celebrating You stamp. Here’s a closer look:

I added my wrapped bouquet of daisies to a card front, but you could easily add it to a tag or gift box as well.

I’m planning to give this card to my sweet neighbor friend for her birthday this week. I hope she likes it!!!

This is so cute, I'm sure she will love it. That was so clever to make your own wrap and it came out perfect. I love the scalloped edge.
